Details of the container ships, Hanjin Mar and Hanjin Marine, were released on Wednesday, the ship brokers said, with offers for the vessels being sought by the end of this month.

The news comes as three bulk carriers, used for carrying commodities such as iron ore, coal and grain, have been sold to Singapore and Greek buyers for a total of almost $39 million, according to data from ship valuation firm VesselsValue.
